Rooney Heritage Stubby 2XL

Email Print PDF

With around 20 shaving brushes in my collection, I don't often become excited about using or obtaining brushes anymore. This was, of course, until I happened to come across a stunning specimen of a shaving brush offered by Rooney.  The Heritage “Stubby” XL series has been released under a Limited Edition run with three different sizes: 1XL, 2XL, and 3XL. Both the 1XL and 2XL have found their way into my rotation, and the 3XL may follow soon. The 2XL is like no other brush I have owned and its performance is definitely second to none.


iKon Bulldog Safety Razor

Because of its luster and durability, the shaving industry has been using stainless steel for decades. Razor blades made the transition from carbon steel to stainless in 1965, and there are many quality straight razor designs in the material. Manufacturers of double-edge safety razors have also transitioned to stainless and have produced a few models that have taken the industry by storm. While most safety razors are metal with a finish overlay, this class of razor is made entirely of stainless steel, which does not flake, peel, wear down, or rust like other metals. More importantly, the new class of stainless steel safety razors is considered by many to be the best constructed shaving instruments available.  The quality of these razors makes them a pleasure to use and the iKon Bulldog Safety Razor is no exception.


Oliveology Shave Gel

Just ask my mother and she’ll tell you that olive oil is the best product on earth. According to my mother, she can use it to remedy any problem from dry hair to stomach aches, and it’s true that olive oil is regarded as one of the best skin moisturizers. It is found in numerous cosmetics, such as soaps, shampoos, lotions and many others. For wet shavers, olive oil is commonly used as a primary ingredient in many pre-shave oils as well as in aftershave balms.  A new shaving product, Oliveology Shave Gel, takes this to heart and uses extra virgin organic olive oil to provide a surprisingly enjoyable shave.

Master Bay Rum Aftershave

Email Print PDF

For many men the subject of traditional wet shaving conjures memories of the old-school barbershops that their fathers and grandfathers visited.  These shops where men gathered to share stories while getting their hair cut were filled with the unique aromas of aftershaves, hair tonics, and talcum powder -- scents that personified what a real barbershop was all about. The signature scent of this barbershop experience was bay rum, the quintessential old-school fragrance.  This article takes a closer look at one of the most affordable and convenient bay rum aftershaves, Master Bay Rum.
